Taynish Art Trail June to September 2024

Welcome to the 2024 Taynish Art Trail. This year artworks are celebrating ‘The Woods’

Open 3rd June until 30th September 2024

We hope you enjoy the trail and please leave us some feedback in the poets seat booklet!

NatureScot would like to express its sincere appreciation to the Artmap Argyll artists who have participated in the Taynish Art Trail 2024.

This year all artists have created works surrounding the theme of ‘The Woods’ to celebrate all things woodlands from the creatures who depend on it and all the way to the sea forest below the waves.

If you would like further information or find out how to purchase any of the artworks on display please contact the artists directly via their webpages or contact Artmap at  [email protected].

Further information about the Argyll National Nature Reserves or NatureScot is available. For more information on the art trail please contact [email protected]

If you enjoyed your visit to Taynish Art Trail why not also explore more of Taynish. Follow the woodland trail (5km) a mostly level and well surfaced route around our ancient sessile oak woodland.

If you are feeling more energetic try the Barr Mor trail (3km.)  The Barr Mor trail is strenuous with some steep climbs but rewards you with great views from the top across to Jura and beyond. 

Explore the coast by following the coastal trails (100m and 1km) which take you down to the southern shore on mostly level and well surfaced paths.

You can find out more about the history and wildlife of Taynish by picking up a trail leaflet (available at the reserve car park). 


All of the artworks are available to view
